CB1 opposes Chatham Square plan

December 12, 2008 11:55AM

Members of Community Board 1 unanimously opposed a plan for the renovation of Chatham Square. The $50 million reconstruction of the five-way Chinatown intersection, which includes Worth Street and the Bowery, will add a pedestrian promenade along Park Row, which has been closed since 9/11 to protect 1 Police Plaza. Residents have been critical of the plan. The community board chose to take a strong stance against the project because the city plans to put it out to bid early next year.
